Re: Searching for David SCHWARZ #general

Dear Genners,

I am searching for David SCHWARZ who traveled to the USA sometime
soon after 1895 and may taken up permanent residence in the USA.
David was born in Rzeszow, Galicia in January, 1869 and he was a
"Friseur" by profession, that is, a barber or hairdresser.

David married Regina JELLINEK in Bratislava in February, 1895 and
a son, Jacques (or Jakob) was born in Vienna in December, 1895.

Regina lived in Vienna, Austria and for a short period in Bielefeld,
Germany before dying in Vienna in 1914. Documents show that her
husband, David, was not with her for many years, and in 1914 her
papers described her as a widow. David may have died in the USA.

I have checked various lists, etc but have not found any reference
to David SCHWARZ, but perhaps there is a professional body which
may have had some employment details of barbers or hairdressers
in the USA around the late 1800s or early 1900s.

Thank you for any leads which I can follow.

Lithuania SIG #Lithuania Alperovich Family Tree Project Gets Underway #lithuania

I'm pretty sure that all of the Alperoviches alive today are related to each
other.

Now some of us are buying all the old Kurenitz censuses to improve the tree
I made suing only the 1850 Kur revision list.

After I finish the Alperovich family tree >from BEFORE 1850, which will
probably take more than 6 months, we should then make up- to- date trees for
all of us that are still alive, and THEN connect all these new trees to the
old ones.

Recently I read in the Jerusalem Post about a young guy named Adam Smith in
the US who did just that for his Hungarian Oberlander family. He has a
family tree that is 131 pages long and has on it 2000 names. One day we'll
have the same kind of tree. Adam is a young doctor, and did his GLOBAL
genealogical work by cellphone all the time that he was training as a doctor
in a hospital . This summer his family had a family reunion in Israel with
130 participants.

If you have an Alperovich/Alpert family tree, please email it to me.

Kind regards,

Koopvr. is short for "koopvrouw", the feminine name of a "koopman". Koopman
is a merchant, koopvrouw is a woman merchant.

I have an ancestor (female, a widow) listed in the "Lijst van
gealimenteerde..." the poor Ashkenazic Jews receiving welfare in Amsterdam
in 1809. Her occupation is listed as "koopvr." What can that mean?

Yes, Lippman (various spellings) is also a fist name.

Can anybody explain the meaning of the name?

Can it be related to the lip? i.e the man with the big lip etc?
Alexander Beider "A Dictionary of Ashkenazic Given Names"
writes that the name is derived >from the Germanic expression
"beloved man". In Yiddish: Libman, in modern German: Liebmann.
So it does not have anything to do with "lip".
